Does Life Really Have To Be This Hard?
5th September, 2010
Are you getting everything out of life you desire? Are you leaping out of bed every Monday morning thinking "bring it on, world?"
Or, are these the thoughts that are running rampant through your head?
- "Why is this happening to me again?!"
- "Does life really have to be this hard?"
- "Where's the fun!"
- "When am I going to get to do what I want to do?"
- "I know I have what it takes, what's happening here?"
Perhaps you feel a wee bit stuck, frustrated, bored, tired of the struggle and pushing the rock uphill. You feel lost and have no clue how to turn your life around.
I'm guessing you know you have what it takes. You're itching to make a change, you're on the brink of a major shift in your relationship, health, career and life that will soothe your soul, but... every time you get close enough, your fears show up and that unhelpful voice is off and running again in your head saying:
"Will I ever get ahead?"
"What do I really want to do?"
"Can I do it? How will I do it?"
"What if I make the wrong choice?"
" Blah, blah, blah....."
Well, I'm here to tell you that you create your reality, not just some of it, you create ALL of it! The only thing that keeps you from having all you desire and squeezing the juice from every area of life....is YOU.
My pleasure and joy is showing you how to transform your life and crank things up a notch. I can help you release any issue that stands in the way of your outrageous joy and freedom.
So, take a deep breath and get ready to rock. It's time. Time to finally go balls to the wall and work on your issues you've been too afraid to tackle. The ones suppressing the fun, freedom and passion that's missing in your life.
So before you even think about calling me to work together one-on-one, I invite you try something out right now.
Take out a sheet of paper and ask yourself these questions.
Where in life do I feel stuck? What would I like to change? In the center of the paper write a statement about this circumstance and draw a circle around it. A statement example might be: I'll never find my purpose or I'll never have the relationship I want...only you know what's really happening for you right now. Trust yourself and get it down on that piece of paper.
Next begin writing around the circle your free flowing thoughts, feelings and judgments about this situation. No censoring, just go with your flow.
Notice as you write your thoughts how you feel. Notice the energy you expend thinking about this issue. Does your mind feel cluttered? Are you frustrated? Are you breathing? How does your body feel? Is it tense?
Here's your 1st Issue AND the exciting opportunity to take ownership as creator and change your reality. Ready to rock?
Assignment: For the next week, I invite you to do this once a day. Choose any issue that's keeping you stuck or any circumstance you'd like to shift so you can juice and crank your life.
Why? Because getting clear on what's up is the first step to moving past it. Go on and give it a try
